The Efficacy of Ferumoxytol in Peritoneal Dialysis Patients: A Short Scientific Report  [PDF]
Sayed Husain, Hani Judeh, Manaf Alroumoh, Farhana Yousaf, Prince Mohan, Ahla Husain, Chaim Charytan, Bruce Spinowitz
Open Journal of Nephrology (OJNeph) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojneph.2014.42014

One of the major elements contributing to anemia in Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients is iron deficiency. Iron supplementation in oral form is often not tolerated and ineffectively absorbed. Intravenous (IV) infusion is time consuming and is inconvenient in Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) patients self-treating at home. A new preparation of iron, ferumoxytol, is a carbohydrate-coated, paramagnetic iron oxide nanoparticle, which can be administered as a bolus intravenous injection, allowing the PD patient to more easily comply with current IV iron dosing regimens. Few studies have been done to evaluate the efficacy of ferumoxytol in PD population. We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of peritoneal dialysis patients who received at least one dose of ferumoxytol between January 2010 and August 2010 and observed that 17 patients showed an improvement in hemoglobin (Hb) to 1 gm/dl within a month of treatment along with a decrease in epoetin dosage in subsequent weeks.

Physico-chemical characteristics of the ground water table after monsoon: a case study at central Travancore in Kerala
Sankar S Vishnu,George Prince,Thomas Mohan
International Journal of Environment , 2014, DOI: 10.3126/ije.v3i2.10501
Abstract: Water quality plays an important role in maintaining plant and animal life. Lack of good quality drinking water and water for sanitation cause health problems. Water quality characteristics arise from a group of physical, chemical and biological factors. The dynamic balance of the aquatic system can be destroyed by human activities resulting in water pollution.Well water has traditionally considered as a safe resource of water for consumption without treatment and extensively used for individual water supply in rural and many urban areas.In this paper a preliminary analysis is done to explore the water quality of selected wells in order to correlate the effect of pollution on water quality at these locations. Water samples are collected from different regions of Vazhappally area located on central travancore of Kerala. These sites are important because people depend only on well water for drinking purpose. The samples are collected from ten locations and analyzed for chemical parameters such as pH, conductivity, salinity, turbidity, acidity, alkainity, hardness, total phosphates, dissolved oxygen, biological oxygen demand, total dissolved solids and Iron content. Samples are also analysed for coliform bacteria which cause pathogenic diseases. Remarkable differences are observed mainly in biological oxygen demand, acidity and hardness. Finally, an attempt has been done to correlate the observed chemical parameters and the waterquality standards.

Intestinal Stoma Prolapse and Surgical Treatments of This Condition in Children: A Systematic Review and a Retrospective Study  [PDF]
Prince Johnson
Surgical Science (SS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2016.79057
Abstract: Background: An intestinal stoma is a surgical opening of the intestine, mostly sutured to the anterior abdominal wall. Stoma prolapse is one of the common complications of stoma. A significant number of stoma prolapse patients require surgical correction. Aim: The first part of this thesis is a literature review of intestinal stoma prolapse and its surgical treatments. The second part is an evaluation of the effect of surgical treatments of this condition on children at OUS-R. Methods: LiteratureA literature search was performed. Fifty-seven English-language studies were selected. Methods: Patients evaluation: Design, Setting, and ParticipantsA retrospective review of pediatric patients (<13 years) surgically treated for intestinal stoma prolapse at OUS-R. Results: LiteratureIncidence of intestinal stoma prolapse for children varies from 8.1% to 25.6%. Many proposed surgical repair procedures for stoma prolapse are available and vary from being ineffective to 100% effective. Results: Patients evaluation at OUS-RFrom 2001 to 2013, 14 of the 304 children with stoma (4.6%), experienced stoma prolapse. Nine stoma prolapse were surgically corrected: Median age at stoma formation for the 9 patients was 1.7 years. Surgical procedures and success rate: Median 2, range 1 - 9 operations/person; varies from being ineffective to 50% effective. Conclusion: Limited data suggests stoma prolapse repair is a surgical challenge. Thus, preferably when possible, closure of the stoma would be most suitable. Incidence of stoma prolapse in our series of pediatric patients at Oslo University Hospital is lower than most published incidence in the pediatric medical literature.
Cognitive Constructivist Theory of Multimedia: Designing Teacher-Made Interactive Digital  [PDF]
Prince Hycy Bull
Creative Education (CE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2013.49088
Abstract: This paper discusses how educators could use the cognitive constructivist theory of multimedia (CCTM) to design interactive digital learning materials using Camtasia and Audacity. Camtasia allows educators to create videos that motivate students, inform parents and enhance learning. It allows educators to record live presentations or lectures and provide students with a file to review. Audacity is a free cross-platform audio editor and recorder for Windows, Mac OS X, GNU/Linux and other operating systems. CCTM advocates for the design of instruction using pictures, videos, audios and words that tap into the prior experiences of the learner, promote active learning, collaboration, personal autonomy, personal growth and alternative assessment that is aligned with multiple intelligences of learners as espoused by Gardener (1993) which are Linguistics, Logico-mathematics, Spatial, Musical, Bodily-kinesthetic, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal and Naturalist. Camtasia and Audacity promote use of CCTM because of their capabilities to construct knowledge through words, pictures, animations, videos and audio. Case studies show that use of teacher-made files could significantly impact students’ learning. Use of teacher-made interactive digital learning materials could revolutionize educational presentations and enhance e-learning delivery. CCMT produced by dynamic presentations creates a balance between the learners’ prior verbal and visual experiences, sensory repository, multiple intelligences and learning styles to construct new knowledge.
Minimum Description Length Methods in Bayesian Model Selection: Some Applications  [PDF]
Mohan Delampady
Open Journal of Statistics (OJS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojs.2013.32012

Computations involved in Bayesian approach to practical model selection problems are usually very difficult. Computational simplifications are sometimes possible, but are not generally applicable. There is a large literature available on a methodology based on information theory called Minimum Description Length (MDL). It is described here how many of these techniques are either directly Bayesian in nature, or are very good objective approximations to Bayesian solutions. First, connections between the Bayesian approach and MDL are theoretically explored; thereafter a few illustrations are provided to describe how MDL can give useful computational simplifications.

Beshiru Sanusi, Prince Famous Izedonmi
Journal of Mathematical Finance (JMF) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jmf.2014.42007

This study is an empirical investigation on the opinions of experienced staff of commercial banks on creative accounting practices in Nigerian commercial banks. To achieve the objective of this study research questions were raised, hypotheses formulated, and a review of related literature was made. The population of this study is the staff of commercial banks currently operating in Nigeria. Quota sampling technique was adopted for this study. The sample used consisted of the most experienced/senior 42 Managers/Assistant Managers and 42 Accountants/Assistant Accountants drawn from the twenty-one (21) consolidated commercial banks head office branches in Lagos state. The survey method of research design was adopted and the primary data were employed. The major instrument used for generating the primary data was the questionnaire, which was designed in five-response option of Likert-scale and administered on senior branch Managers/Assistant Managers and Accountants/Assistant Accountants of the commercial banks chosen for this study. The data generated for this study were analyzed through mean scores while the stated hypotheses were statistically tested with Z-test. Our findings revealed that, the major reason for creative accounting practices in Nigerian commercial banks is to boost the market value of shares; users of accounting information are adversely affected by this practice of creative accounting; Streamlining accounting principles and rules to reduce diversities of professional judgment in financial reporting will help minimize creative accounting practices. Therefore we recommended among others that creative accounting should be considered as a serious crime and as such accounting bodies, law courts and other regulatory authorities need to adopt strict measure to stop the practice.

L’apprentissage des mots : présentation d’un dispositif basé sur le jugement sémantique Learning words: Presentation of a method based on semantic judgement

Abstract: L’apprentissage d’un vocabulaire anglais adéquat reste un défi pour beaucoup d’apprenants, qui disposent rarement d’un support leur permettant d’aborder cette tache de manière systématique. Avec comme point de départ une tache de jugement sémantique, accompagnée de phrases contextes, quatre expériences ont été conduites, l’objectif étant de déterminer des caractéristiques d’un tel support. Les deux premières expériences examinent l’efficacité de la tache de jugement sémantique en tant qu’outil d’apprentissage, la troisième se penche sur le r le de la traduction, la quatrième fait intervenir des images et un cadre narratif. Les résultats obtenus permettent d’envisager de tester le dispositif en situation réelle, tout en continuant de soumettre certains paramètres, tels que l’effet du cadre narratif ou le rajout d’une présentation auditive, à de nouvelles expériences. The learning of an adequate English vocabulary remains a challenge for many learners, who rarely have material with which to approach the task systematically. With a view to determining some characteristics of such material, four experiments were carried out, taking a semantic judgement task, accompanied by context sentences, as a starting point. The first two experiments looked at the effectiveness of the semantic judgment task as a learning tool, the third is concerned with the role of translation, and the fourth includes pictures and a narrative framework. The results allow us to envisage testing the instrument in a real learning situation, whilst continuing to examine certain parameters in experimental conditions. Among these are the effect of the narrative framework or the addition of an auditory presentation.
Le centre de langues : le rêve et la réalisation The self-access centre: The dream and its fulfilment
Peter Prince
Recherche et Pratiques Pédagogiques en Langues de Spécialité : Cahiers de l'APLIUT , 2012, DOI: 10.4000/apliut.280
Abstract: Bien que chaque Centre de Ressources en Langues (CRL) soit spécifique, fa onné par un contexte local, la plupart d’entre eux partage des caractéristiques communes. Cet article dresse le bilan d’un CRL ‘typique’, en ce sens que le projet de le créer et de le faire évoluer se situe dans un contexte général dans lequel de nombreux CRL se reconna tront. Parmi les aspects les plus fréquemment rencontrés dans la mise en uvre d’un projet de CRL, appara t une certaine frustration engendrée par le sentiment de devoir se débrouiller seul avec les moyens du bord. Les prises de décision et les politiques adoptées dans le milieu universitaire sont rarement propices à une démarche planifiée et méthodique. Toutefois, la motivation que suscite chez le personnel d’un CRL la réalisation d’un projet innovant peut suffire à surmonter les obstacles. Si la réalité correspond rarement à la vision de départ, il importe de ne pas perdre celle-ci de vue pour que le CRL continue d’évoluer. Although each self-access centre (SAC) is specific, shaped by a local context, most of them share certain features. This article sums up the experience of a ‘typical’ SAC whose creation and development took place within a general context recognisable by many SACs. Among the aspects commonly found when setting up a SAC is a certain frustration caused by the feeling that one has to muddle through on one’s own with limited means. The decision-taking process and the policies adopted in universities are rarely conducive to a planned or methodical approach. However, the motivation of the SAC staff to fulfil an innovative project can overcome the obstacles. If the reality rarely corresponds to the initial vision, it is important not to lose sight of the vision so that the SAC continues to develop.

Interaction between Software Engineering and Artificial Intelligence- A Review
Prince Jain
International Journal on Computer Science and Engineering , 2011,
Abstract: Software engineering and artificial intelligence is the two field of the computer science. During the last decades, the disciplines of Artificial Intelligence and Software Engineering have developedseparately without the much exchange of research outcomes. However, both fields of computer science have different characteristics, benefits and limitations. This statement opens many possibilities and ideas for research. One idea is that the researcher applies the available methods, tools and techniques of Artificial Intelligence to Software Engineering and Software Engineering to Artificial Intelligence in a manner that good things, feature, characteristic and advantages of the both fields is taken up, and the limitations will reduces. During applicability, an intersection area is found between AI and SE, which forms the relation between AI and SE. The work in this paper discusses the factor that come while communicating between AI and SE such as Communication, objective, Problem and reasons for adopting. This work explores the framework of interaction on which both fields are communicate with each other. This framework has four major classes of interaction such as software support environment, AI tools and techniques in conventional software, Use of conventional software technology and Methodological considerations. This paper introduces the relation between AI and SE, and varioustechniques evolved while merging.
